The Hallo-Weiner by Dav Pilkey
Poor Oscar. He is a Dachshund who is gets teased because of his low stature and long size. He gets calle "weiner dog" and he does not like it, not one bit.
His mom even gets in on the action, not teasing but definitely adds fuel to the fire. For Halloween she buys him a giant hot dog bun where he fits in the middle as the hot dog.
Oh, the teasing! Poor Oscar gets teased so much, and he can't walk as fast as his friends and misses out on all the candy.
In the end, Oscar manages to save the day...
What I Thought:
Such a cute book! Super fun illustrations and laugh out loud text. Dav Pilkey is the man behind Captain Underpants, so this book is bound to be a hit. A super fun read aloud, absolutely perfect for this Halloween season.
